Not really; the RDF model is itself a graph.  e.g. the metadata for a package 
would be something like:

<package URL> -> rdf:type -> doap:Project
              -> doap:CVSRepository cvs.sf.net
	      -> doap:maintainer -> <person> -> rdf:type -> foaf:Person
	                                     -> foaf:mbox -> amk at amk.ca
	                                     -> foaf:ircNickname -> amk_

See http://www.amk.ca/talks/2004-12-02/rdf-graph.png for another example graph.

There are some small RDF parsers out there, but I don't know if
they're fully standard-compliant.
